Lino Print Tote Bag
About the Course
Learn about repeat pattern design and then carve your own design into a lino block and print it onto a tote bag! Leave this workshop with a beautiful handmade ‘bag for life’ and, more importantly, all the skills needed to design and create hand-printed fabric at home.

This one day workshop starts with repeat pattern design and carving two soft cut blocks ready for printing onto your tote bag in the afternoon.
